Although Daphney Conco knows the joy of large families, having lived a happy childhood as one of nine siblings, she has made it her goal to promote abortions in her home country of South Africa.

An abortion activist, researcher and senior lecturer at the School of Public Health at the University of the Witwatersrand, Conco spoke with the Daily Maverick about her life and her pro-abortion work.

South Africa has some of the most permissive pro-abortion laws in the world, but they are not enough for Conco. In her opinion, there are still too few women who know where to go to abort their unborn babies.

“Access is not where we feel it should be. We still find people saying I have a person who wants to have an abortion, the person is from Limpopo, the person is from Mpumalanga, where must I send them?” she told the news outlet.

Conco said abortions should be considered “basic” health care. However, many doctors say aborting unborn babies is not health care at all.

Here’s more from the report:

Conco says abortion services at clinics are often made out to be a specialised service. “It’s not. It’s a basic service. With all the advances in medical abortion where people are able to take a pill, it should be improving, but I do not think we are there yet,” she says. …

Conco’s research focuses on social determinants of health, eradication of extreme poverty and hunger, promoting gender equality and women’s empowerment, advocating for sexual and reproductive health, and mapping the epidemiology of abortion access in South Africa.

Why Conco is pro-abortion is not clear from the interview. The woman said she grew up on a farm in rural South Africa, part of a large and happy family who attended church regularly.

“You know, my childhood was a happy one. Our house was full of kids,” she said. “We farmed most of our food. The only things we bought were candles and soap, but sometimes we will make our own soap. We shared everything. I mean everything — from your toothbrush to your face towel.”

Although they did not have a lot of money, she told the news outlet that her parents made sure that she and all her siblings had good clothes for church on Sunday, a special memory.

So what prompted Conco to become pro-abortion she did not say.

Killing unborn babies is not a solution to poverty or abuse or maternal mortality. It just adds problem on top of problem by destroying the life of a vulnerable, innocent child in the womb. Struggling pregnant mothers deserve better; through financial, medical and emotional support for themselves and their babies, families can grow and thrive.
